Russia's foreign minister concerned over U.S. plans to keep Afghan bases

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed concerns on Thursday over U.S. plans to keep its military contingent in Afghanistan after the pullout of international troops in 2014.

“We … do not understand such [U.S.] plans to maintain a presence …, we have questions and we would like to get answers,” Lavrov told a news conference following the foreign ministerial meeting of the Russia-NATO Council in Brussels.
